Question about 1994 Ford F150 Styleside Supercab

Soft clutch in 1994 F150

Specs- 94 F150 with a 5.0 L V-8, 4WD, M50D manual transmission
I replaced the clutch about a month ago, and now I have a very soft or no clutch pressure at all. There were no problems with the removal or installation, and it the work was done by qualified people with good knowledge. Looking at a Chilton's manual and on the internet, it could be a variety of problems, from heavy oil (I live in Alaska and it's winter) to bad linkages to slave cylinder etc. etc. I was hoping you could help, please send me some information as soon as possible. Thank you.

Sounds like like you may have air in the hydraulic system.Run some brake fluid through the system by opening the bleeder on the slave cylinder attached to the transmission. Have a helper depress the clutch pedal until it touches the floorboard. Have him tell you so you can close the bleeder.Once the bleeder is closed have your helper push the clutch pedal several times pausing 5 seconds between each push. Keep an eye on the fluid resovoir for the clutch and fill as needed. Do this untill you either remove all the bubbles or the clutch feels good again. It can take a lot of time to move the air down the pipe so be prepared.

1994 ford ranger, My stick wont go into fifth gear position.


When you put the Shift Handle back into the TOP of the transmission, there is a spring on the Top and it that comes loose, it would cause this.

BTW... it happened to me

Pull the Stick UP, Clean the Ball, make sure all the parts are there and that the spring that you push against is there and reinstall

Can you use a better oil in a 1994 ford 250 5 speed manual than atf?


Not sure what you mean by "better oil" but I'll tell you this... The M50D transmission is designed to use ATF. If you're using a stadard Type F fluid then yes, there is a better oil. It's Mercon V ATF. I believe this tranny takes 3 qts.
I hope this helps!

I have an 89 Ford F150 that is stuck in fourth gear. How do i get it out of gear?


Have you checked the fluid level. It is a common problem on the M50D manual transmission to run out of fluid and seize the input shaft and the mainshaft together. This causes it to be stuck in 4th. If this has happened you will need to replace or rebuild the transmission.

Did you put the correct fluid back in the transmission? If it is too heavy weight oil it will cause the synronizers to stick.

Shifting gears very stiff.


I am afraid I bare bad news... the transmission is suffering from swollen selector fork bushings. ATF fluid swells the bushings up, it used to be what was used to lubricate the transmission. however ford has long ago changed the specs to what is called Ford Honey manual trans oil its has a brown honey color or royal purple synchomax. they only fix for this is to replace the selector forks and inly use ford honey manual trans oil. there is a TSB issued for the fluid.
